Road Trip: Arizona (2016)

A road trip though the desert yielded some amazing discoveries in the form of Horseshoe Bend, a natural feature where the Colorado River has carved out a horseshoe shaped path for itself through sandstone cliffs.  Hikes through Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons with beams of sunlight piercing through tiny gaps above made for a truly amazing and memorable experience as well.  © Craig Durling
